    I worked with Chris for a short time here at Black Box Network Services, but each time I saw him he was always a wonderful young man to be around. I will miss him dearly. I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that he is gone from all of our lives. May God Bless his family and give them strenght they need to carry on. Wanda

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family & those who loved Chris. I worked with him at Black Box & saw him nearly every day. He was always wearing his hat & laid-back smile. I truly miss him & his sense of humor. He certainly knew how to make me laugh. From experience, I already know there are no words. Please know that I’m praying for all of you.
